The belt over roller conveyor is unique in that it uses a belt for transporting product but the belt rides along on a bed of rollers. This feature reduces friction on the belt that would be experienced when using another conveyor such as a slider bed while providing positive product grip. This reduction in friction allows this conveyor to handle heavier loads, be used in conjunction with sortation equipment such as pushers, and reduces wear and tear on the belt itself. The belt over roller comes standard with a center drive motor to allow reversibility, but a side-mount motor is available for low elevation applications.
The belt over roller conveyor can be used in several applications ranging from transportation, packaging, product inspection, and assembly. With the belt over roller design, incline applications can apply as well. It can be found in industries like retail, manufacturing, and book distribution.
